I climbed this volcano with Paredon Expeditions last year ( 2012 ) in December. The walks briefing the night before was concise, and boots and clothes measurements were taken. A early rise and collection from my B & B to Paredon HQ, where collection of gear took place. All equipment was spotless and in first class condition. As it had... More

We used Paredon Andes Expeditions for a one-day attempt on Villarica volcano just outside of Pucon. From the moment of contact with Paredon I could tell that this was a well-run, prompt, responsive and safety-concious mountain guiding company. I've used many mountaineering guide services in the United States and Paredon offers comparable quality. Mauricio Bustamante led our outing along with... More

On Volcan Villaricca Mauricio and Alvaro were our guides to a party of 4, a ratio of 2:1, and in the fresh snow they roped us up for safety. This proved to absolutely correct. Other groups were large, with few guides and no discipline despite the dangerous conditions. Our guides feared for these groups and said it was too dangerous... More

What a fantastic experience. After reading about the recent accidents which happened on the volcano we were cautious of who to go with and were looking for safety first. Our experience with Paredon Andes Exhibitions was second to none. We were the first at the mountain, and the ratio of guides to tourists was 1:3, with the group never being... More

My husband and I booked the trek up the volcano with Maurismo and we were so impressed by him and his knowledge and guidance. We were witness to many other groups climbing the day we went up and ours was definietly a stand out- Maurismo came to our hostel the night before to completely prepare us for the climb and... More

This company is outstanding! I really owe them the best testimonial I can get them, for the outstanging service I got. It's director, Mauricio Bustamante is amazingly skilled on the tours to ascend volcanos in the region and responsible with his clients' safety. I 100% recommend Paredón Expeditions. On the day we climbed Villarica, only around 15 people (only 2... More

I did the climbing of Volcán Villarica together with a friend and and were very pleased with our decision to chose Paredon. Our guide came to our hostel the night before and explained us everything. They only take 5-6 people on each tour and we could definitely see the difference the next day when we watched other groups who seemed... More

While traveling in Chile we knew a "must-do" was to climb Volcan Villarica. Through Lonely Planet's advice we decided to stay at the Tree House Hostel in Pucon which partners with Paredon Andes Expeditions, and we had a really good experience with both. First of all, Paredon only takes groups of 5-6 people, compared to the groups of 20+ you... More

While attending a conference in Pucon I was told that “A Must” is to climb the Villiarrica Volcano. Although I am an experienced hiker, I decided to hire a guide, as I wanted to make sure I could completely enjoy the experience. Also, as I was organizing the climb for others who were attending the conference, I thought it prudent... More
